ABSTRACT
This essay analyzes three futuristic Spanish novels published in 2011 from an ecocritical perspective. The three works are critical dystopias and depict future scenarios in which the current social and ecological crisis has arrived to unsustainable extremes. These futures would be the result of continuing with the logic of constant economic growth in the context of a limited biosphere. Thus, this essay reveals, deploying degrowth theory, how these novels imply a criticism to the unsustainable global capitalism and an invitation to the reader to question its legitimacy.
